Warren Butler, a career food and beverage professional, has been named the new general manager at Marmalade Café at La Cumbre Plaza, 3825 State St. Butler succeeds Mark Hopper.

A native of Boston, Butler began his career in the food and beverage industry in the 1980s and has worked as a restaurant manager and owner throughout the country, including in Los Angeles at Morton’s The Steakhouse. He previously managed the Stateside Restaurant & Lounge in La Arcada.

“I am extremely happy to be working with the Marmalade Café group, and especially the team at Marmalade Café in Santa Barbara,” Butler said. “Our chef, Romeo Garcia, has been with the company for over 22 years and he continues to create and provide outstanding recipes for our patrons enjoyment.

“We have countless patrons who are satisfied regulars at the restaurant, and we welcome anyone who has not been in yet to treat yourself and your family to a great breakfast, lunch or dinner.”

The original Marmalade Café opened in Santa Monica in 1990 and the company has since expanded to locations in Calabasas, El Segundo, the Los Angeles Farmers Market, Malibu, Palos Verdes, Santa Barbara, Sherman Oaks and Westlake Village.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
